I loved the restored historic farmhouse. I loved all the furniture in that house, I loved the stove, potbellied stove, and all the equipment in the basement. I thought the grounds were gorgeous, and I like seeing the horses and the carriages. I even got a kick out of the farm animals! But my kid was bored with everything except... More

Leonardo, thanks for taking the time to write. Although we can't guarantee that all children who visit the farm are fascinated with farm animals, we've found that most enjoy the experience and become quite engaged – especially if they are getting close to large farm animals for the first time. It sounds like this was not the case for your... More

Woodstock is quintessential Vermont! What a pretty little town with lots of things to see and do. We enjoyed touring the Billings Farm and Museum. It was a look back in time as well as seeing modern farming operations in Vermont. Lots of fun for kids with all of the animals but history buffs will like it too.

What a delightful way to spend a few hours. Movie, barns, restored historic farm house, livestock and added DELUXE bonus of horse drawn sleigh ride! We enjoyed every minute. Docents and farm workers were all sooo knowledgable and kind. We will be back!

worth a visit, some farm animals to see, interesting architecture and learn about what a farm operating in the late 1800's was like.

House as well as barn on full view, and we found the guide to be knowledgeable and helpful. Be careful to dodge the poop in the barn.

We had no idea the role that Mrssrs. Marsh, Billings and Rockefeller played in conservation throughout our country, let alone that they all called Woodstock home. Don't miss this museum if you go to Woodstock.

Friendly staff and friendly farm animals. The tour through the farm house was educational and fun! Good place to visit, for all ages. Wagon ride was nice even though the animals were sheltered for the season. We would return.

Went on a chilly, drizzly day so didn't have ice cream but it looked good. Dairy cows were friendly (well some) and actually licked my husband's arm. Interesting how people lived. The applesauce being cooked in the farmhouse smelled fantastic.
